Biotic threats to tree growth, survival, or reproduction often arise from interactions among a suite of species, primarily insects and fungi, that function together to varying degrees to defeat host defenses, secure resources, and infect new hosts. Where two or more organisms interact, there is strong potential for positive or negative feedbacks that can have large effects on host population and disease dynamics.
